“Presently, my animal family consists of one spunky little cockatiel named Bernie. My personal love and dedication to the animal kingdom stems from Proverbs 12:10A which says that a good and righteous person regards the life of their animal.”

My goal at Southpointe Veterinary Hospital is to make clients and patients feel welcomed and appreciated. Also, I want to show human and animal-kind alike, the respect and compassion that makes Southpointe the special hospital that it is.”

Jennifer started her employment with Southpointe in June 2004. She is an avid book and animal lover. After the bookstore that she worked at for six years closed she decided to pursue a position involving her love of animals.

Since 2008 Jennifer has been a feline foster parent for P.A.W.S. of Michigan, providing a loving home to many cats as they await their forever homes.

“Southpointe has such a wonderful family atmosphere. Everyone here truly cares and clients and their pets feel like a part of our families. We share their joys and their tears.”

Sheila is a Wyandotte native and considers herself a “dog person”.  A Michigan State University alumni, she came to Southpointe Veterinary Hospital in 2012 and primarily works as a receptionist but also thoroughly enjoys getting close with the boarders when working a few times a month as a kennel attendant.  She has come to better appreciate the feline species and invites everyone to come to our Adoption Center when looking for a new addition to the family.
